Tomorrow, January 13, 2017, is the deadline to turn in $35 or more in Tiger Trek donations in time to have a Tiger Trek T-Shirt for Tiger Trek.  You can turn in the envelope that came home in backpacks.  Please mark your child’s t-shirt size on the outside of the envelope.  If you can’t put your hands on the envelope, you can donate via credit card here:  Donate.   

If you do donate via our site (donate via internet), you can list your child’s grade and t-shirt size in the name block (where it says “Name of child you are sponsoring”) to completely avoid sending in the Tiger Trek envelope.   If you forget to put your child’s grade and shirt size next to their name when filling out the information on the website, just send me a reply email with your child’s name and t-shirt size so you don’t have to send back the envelope.

Thank you for your donations.  Tiger Trek is a fundraiser where 100% of the funds go back to the school and these funds support the after school tutoring program, arts enrichment, teacher curriculum grants and more.
